So, I’m pretty excited about something new I’ve been working on. My friend Paulette and I are hosting a series of culinary tours right here in Nashville! Paulette is the publisher and editor-in-chief of Alimentum Journal, a literary review all about food. She also teaches Italian-themed cooking classes here in Nashville. We both share a love of food and travel, and thought, “why not?” Nashville has a lot to offer food-wise, especially when it comes to ethnic eating. We wanted to plan something to make some of the more off-the-beaten-track places more approachable.
Our first tour will take a group of 10 to Nolensville Pike. The nuts and bolts are below, from a recent press release. Also, check out Chris Chamberlain’s awesome Bites post from the Nashville Scene.
Hope you can make it!
- Alimentum Eat & Greet Tour: Nolensville Pike

- Annakate Tefft, Public Relations & Tour Host
When: Saturday, September 17, 2011 9:30-4pm
What: Guided tour costs $95 per person, limit 10 people. Tour includes transportation (from group meeting point, TBD), lunch and tastings from an assortment of restaurants, markets and bakeries along the Nolensville Pike corridor, the latest copy of Alimentum Journal, and fun times with fellow local foodies.
Where: Tour departs at 9:30am sharp (we’ve got a lot to cover!); meeting location TBD
Why: To wake up your palate, push your culinary limits, and expose a relatively untouched world of ethnic dining in our own backyard. And honestly, why not?!
The next tour will be October 22 and will be to a local farm. Details to come!
